Cathedral students to take a stand together for the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence Featured

Students of Cathedral’s Middle School will participate in the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence this Friday 17 March.

The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is held annually on the third Friday of March. It is an opportunity for the whole school community to 'take a stand together' against bullying and violence.

Year 9 Dean, Mrs Debbie Bennett-Rauch said “The National Day against Bullying allows the school to reflect and move forward on the issue of Bullying. It provides a national day that we can address bullying and continue to learn the skills required to allow students in the Middle School to be safe and also supported.”

 

“This is the fifth year that our Middle School Student Parliament has been given the responsibility to drive our planning for the National Action Day Against Bullying and Violence, and our Year 9 leaders have come up with a theme of “Know my Story” and have organised a range of innovative, thought-provoking and engaging activities for their peers” continued Mrs Bennett-Rauch.

The “Know my Story” theme will be recognised on this day, but also for the whole year in the Middle School. The theory behind the theme is, when students take the time to truly get to know someone respect and responsibility become a part of learning someone’s story. 

“Students at our school don’t have to be “best friends” but “Know my Story” allows the individual to respect themselves and then respect each other.” 

“School should be the one place that a child can feel safe and valued. “Know my Story” allows that to happen with no pretence. The diversity of our population means respecting individuality is important. Every Middle School child should each day love to come to our school” added Mrs Bennett-Rauch.

Year 9 student Josie Hosking said that it’s important that we all learn that bullying is not OK. 

“Students shouldn’t have to worry about coming to school and if they will get teased. School should be a happy and fun place, where you catch up with friends and learn new things each day.”

The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence celebrations will take place throughout the day on Friday 17 March with a range of activities and education sessions for students.
